Using Warren Berger's Why/What if/How model from A More Beautiful Question to rethink Teacher Evaluation.  This is an Educational Leadership paper so it definitely falls into the "half-baked" category.

Thanks for adding this fabulous resource for us to consider. You're raising a critical point: which questions or assumptions have given us the PD model we most often experience now?  How can posing "more beautiful" questions lead us to imagine new possibilities that don't yet exist. Critical.

That's very kind of you to say.  I did that for one of Mickey's classes.  
Funny that the REED institute opportunity seemed to miraculously show up at the same time. However, our progress as a school site on the REED work has been disappointing and non-existent.  As one of my sweet past students used to say, "Phooey!".
Note this article showed up recently: http://www.teachingquality.org/content/blogs/barnett-berry/why-teacher-powered-schools-are-picking-momentum

Not sure how to make that a hyperlink in this format, sorry.

Funny story with that one (also related to Mickey's class).  I'll tell you the story when you and your sweet family move to Sebastopol.  :)  Otherwise, you will have to ask Brulene about it.  Say hello to her for me, as well.  

Btw are these posts going to the whole world?
